To think wraps are shit?

That's not to say I don't like them, I do. I just cannot get to grips with making them. Any decent amount of filling and they don't wrap properly, unroll, fall apart. The ones that cone up on a fanjita kit are tiny, capable of holding 2 slivers of chicken and a cm of lettuce.

Am I going wrong, or aibu to think they are shit?

Always better than a baggy though tbf

I think you are just a bad wrapper.

Just finished Fajitas (out or a kit) kids favourite meal here.

You are doing it wrong 😀

Except if it gets wet!

You need bigger wraps.

Theres a way to fold them. I recently learnt this, no spilling out.

DH finds me eating wraps hilarious as I put way too much filling in every time and never learn.

We had fajitas last night. We all enjoyed them, except I kept having to rewrap, reassemble the children's ones. And couldn't get enough filing in mine!

Just buy the big wraps confused

Nottalotta Sat 14-Dec-19 17:24:55

@TheHootiestChristmasOwl yes, that's what I do, the "right" amount is paltry!

Yup, you're a bad rapper.
If you put a bit of sour cream or something on the edge it makes it stick.

‘Fanjita’ kit

What’s your technique? I always leave an inch gap at the bottom then tuck that up before folding over the sides and they rarely go wrong.

Where might one find these fanjita kits OP? Asking for a friend.

YABVU. Wraps are the best. You just need to change your wrapping technique and buy bigger wraps.

ClaraThePigeon Sat 14-Dec-19 17:28:55

Buy the soft taco shells. They're much easier to eat.

Screw wraps. I could never wrap them up properly too.
And that is why I crepe😂 bit thicker crepe, you can flavour them too and voilà! An easy to use wrap. I am testing whether they freeze well next.

Good God. I picked up the tasty and mild fanjita kit from Sainsbury. grin

Thought you were referring to the BIG scarf thinngies lol. Had a reply ready in my head but scratch that now!

SnuggyBuggy Sat 14-Dec-19 17:31:30

I always fail to properly wrap the bottom and the filling spills over me

hsegfiugseskufh Sat 14-Dec-19 17:31:59

Put cheese and ham in them and put them in a panini maker. they're amazing and they dont fall apart because the cheese sticks it together.

NoIDontWatchLoveIsland Sat 14-Dec-19 17:32:27

Your technique is lacking.

Take wrap. Place filling in middle. Fold in from right. Fold in from left. The two edges should have a small gap between. Fold up from bottom. Fold down from top (the edges should mostly overlap).


DingDongSchadenfreudeOnHigh Sat 14-Dec-19 17:45:21

You are right!

The ones in the kits hold less than a mouthful. We always buy extra wraps.

And now I fancy fajitas . . . . <mouth waters>

venusandmars Sat 14-Dec-19 17:45:40

But then you've got mostly wrap, and not much filling (which is the tasty bit)
